We have dairy on the mind here at home, in more ways than one. The kids are bonding with their soon to be county fair calves. Heading down to the barn every day after school to practice leading the little calves around on halter and also to pet and brush their furry, fast growing friends. Soon these calves will be what I call "Lap Cows"....cows that want you to sit in THEIR laps and cuddle.Pin It
We also returned home from attending the California State Holstein Association annual convention, which was held in Stockton this year. Super Bowl was not the only 'Bowl' on our minds this past weekend. Bryce with his team mates, from our local Redwood Empire Holstein Club, competed in the novice division of Dairy Bowl. This is where the teams compete against each other, clicking their individual buzzers as fast as they can to answer various dairy related questions. Such a fun time!
And lastly, healthy eating is on my mind after the holiday mayhem. And this egg white pepper jack frittata might be on the menu for dinner tonight!
